When I started writing this blog I totally thought it would be easy to dream up ideas and subjects to explore and write about. In the beginning it was that way but as time went on it became harder and harder for me to brainstorm ideas. Here I find myself months since my last blog kicking myself in the butt because writing is and always has been an enjoyable activity for me. So what has been stopping me you might ask? To be honest I think I needed.....no I did not need anything, I simply have not wanted to do it.
We all have times when we have tasks or duties we do no want to complete and writing this blog was one of those times. Today I started thinking that instead of seeing it as a task or duty to complete I need to look at writing my blog as my way to regularly engage in some king of creative expression. The only thing stopping me from writing this blog has been myself. People often quit activities because they say they just do not have the time, but that is not my problem. I have the time, I have the tools needed and I know how satisfied I feel when I hit the share button.
I also quit going to the gym for a couple of months so maybe I was going through a phase. Why do we tend to quit those activities that we know are good for us and our overall well-being? I know I am not the only one out there guilty of slacking off but it is certainly something to think about.
